    Christine Meeusen, right, who goes by the name Sister Kate, and India Delgado, who calls herself Sister Eevee, smoke a joint at Sisters of the Valley near Merced. The Sisters are self-ordained "weed nuns" on a mission to heal and empower women with their cannabis products. The Sisters, who despite their habits do not belong to any order of the Catholic Church, harvest their own cannabis plants. "We're against religion, so we're not a religion. We consider ourselves Beguine revivalists, and we reach back to pre-Christian practices,” says 58-year-old Sister Kate, who founded the sisterhood in 2014.
